The writer then went on to ask a very pointed question:
Would those looking in at your life label you as a Christian (a true follower of Christ)?
Would your actions cause others to see that you live, act, and behave like Christ?
Since that day, I have thought a lot about what that means. I want others to see Christ in me. I want them to see my life and heart reflect His in such a way that it's evident that I am following hard after Him.
My sister shared something that she learned recently and it tied in so well with this thought. She was in a cemetery and came across a Latin phrase on a headstone. The English translation rolled around inside my head and wouldn't leave me alone. The phrase in English was: "Though silent, he speaks."
I wrote more about it at Ungrind.org today. Please join me (by clicking HERE) as I write about how we can speak even though we may never utter a word.
